On 25 May 2018, the biggest changes in data protection for 20 years came into force in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018. This legislation affects how you gain the consent of your customers and employees to process and store their personal data.
Individuals also gained greater rights to access, amending and removing the personal data you hold about them. New sanctions were introduced for businesses that don’t comply with the new data protection requirements and companies are urged to start acting now.
You might be thinking…
- I don’t process personal data
- Is it really that big a deal?
- I don’t know where to start
Why you should act now?
- You may believe that you do not process personal data, but every time you send an email to a contact, call a client or network, you’re processing personal data and will need to ensure your practices are up to speed.
- Where the Information Commissioner’s Office has been handed greater powers to fine data protection infringements, this has led to real penalties being handed to businesses for their non-compliance. This includes British Airways being fined £189m and Marriot being fined £99m respectively.
- The first stage of understanding your compliance is understanding what data is coming into your business and then tracking its journey – this is easiest when producing a data map. Think of it as a road map for the data.
We keep our advice in easy to understand language.
Our approach to helping with your GDPR compliance
Simply book a call with us and one of our experts will talk you through our Data Protection Health Check Service. We’ll need to build a good understanding of your business, your market and the way you collect and process personal data. Don’t worry if you’re not sure; it’s our job to talk you through your options.
We’ll set out our fixed fee and timescales for helping you get your compliance in order. We like to keep this short and straight to the point so you can make a quick decision to instruct us.
Once you’ve instructed us, we’ll book a discovery call to go through the wide range of questions to determine what data you’re collecting, how you’re collecting it, and ultimately how you’re using it.
Taking you through our findings
Once our expert has reviewed your answers and compliance, they will produce a report into our findings and the next steps to ensure you improve your compliance. We’ll also provide a document bundle with the required policies and procedures required by your business.
